NEW YORK, Feb. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- FENWICK KEATS Real Estate and the ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals ®) unveiled the first dedicated Animal Care & Control of NYC (AC&C) Mobile Adoption Center in Union Square Park on Sunday, celebrating the milestone with an inaugural adoption event featuring animals from AC&C who are looking for loving homes.
The brand new 26 ft. long vehicle will enable AC&C to bring shelter dogs and cats to previously unreachable New Yorkers looking to adopt throughout the five boroughs.
The state-of-the-art adoption vehicle was funded by a $60,000 donation from FENWICK KEATS Real Estate and a $60,000 grant from the ASPCA.
With approximately 30,000 cats, dogs, and other animals in need coming to AC&C each year, and not enough adopters coming to AC&C's buildings, the new Mobile Adoption Center will play a vital role in promoting and increasing adoptions in more locations throughout NYC.
AC&C's three full-service Care Centers in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Staten Island are open for adoptions seven days a week, but not everyone can easily make it to these locations to adopt. AC&C's facilities in the Bronx and Queens are Pet Receiving Centers, and do not serve adopters.
"We've long had a need for our own Mobile Adoption Center, and all of us at AC&C are grateful to Fenwick Keats Real Estate and the ASPCA for their generosity and commitment to NYC animals in need," said Risa Weinstock, Executive Director of Animal Care & Control of NYC.
"The Mobile Adoption Center will greatly improve AC&C's ability to showcase many animals available for adoption in neighborhoods throughout NYC, increasing their chances to find a 'forever' home," added Weinstock.
"Sometimes a house is not a home without some love. So at Fenwick Keats, we're delighted that by helping to provide shelter to animals, we'll enable more people to add love to their lives, and to make their house truly a home," said Robert Anzalone, CEO/co-founder, of FENWICK KEATS Real Estate.
"Loving adopters can't always come to us; we have to go to them," said ASPCA President & CEO Matthew Bershadker. "This mobile adoption center will be a life-changer for not only homeless animals, but also for families and individuals to whom these wonderful pets will bring incredible joy. We couldn't be happier for AC&C or for New Yorkers."
AC&C—which launched its newly designed adoption program last year, featuring full-time adoption counselors, had 6,146 adoptions to members of the public last year, an increase of more than 1,300 from 2012. The new Mobile Adoption Center will boost the number of adoptions in years to come by bringing great pets available for adoption to more locations throughout the city. The Mobile Adoption Center will also raise awareness about AC&C and its existing locations.
Upcoming AC&C Mobile Adoption Center events include:
- Saturday, February 22 at Fenwick Keats, 2244 Broadway, in Manhattan
- Saturday, March 15 at Fenwick Keats, 45 7th Avenue, in Manhattan
- Saturday, March 22 at House of VANS with the ASPCA, 25 Franklin Street, in Greenpoint, Brooklyn

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
